What motorcycle to look for?
Let me lay out why I want a bike.
Ok my Mom, Dad, Sister, and Brother-in-law all have Harleys. You Harley guys know what that means to me... I want one too. But here is my delema, I'm not sure if I can handle a bike that big(come on you know even sportsters are huge to a guy who has never been on a bike).
What I need to find is a bike that will help me learn to handle a hog and cost $3000 or less(thus why I'm not buyig a Harley right off). For that price it needs to be a running a reliable bike. What should I be looking for?

With all those bikes in the family why not borrow one. Every bike is different and it would be difficult to mimik the ride at $3k.
For ~$3k you could pick this up new http://www.kawasaki.com/Products/Detail.aspx?id=263

when u are ready to step up to a v-rod call me, anything less than a hog and they will never stop teasing u, and ohh, if ya get a sporty, at least have open pipes. (they are for chics, but the 1200s run nice )

You can pick up an older solid-mount 883 for 3K, if you search hard enough and are willing to ship...

If you want a Harley, get a Harley. Don't settle; you won't be happy.
I'm personally not a huge HD guy, but there IS someting unique about them.

I say take the course and just buy the harley you like, skip the expense of buying a starter, once you drive the bike for a couple of hours you'll be good to go, just take it easy... Just about all the bikes are well balanced, they look bigger and heavier than they really are , just be cautious till you get the hang of it, my 2 cents...

How about a '76 Yamaha TT500?
I haven't messed with my TT500 for around 10 years. I cleaned the carb and it fires up on the first or second kick. I have a mint tank that's not on the bike now and I would hate to dent that tank... Ron
